Sleek Make Up Bad Girl & Good Girl Eyeshadow Palettes Swatches and Review

I buy Sleek palettes just because I always do – I missed out on Circus because I found it hard to buy…lurid. (I may still locate one of these purely for swatching reasons).

Anyway, Sleek have released two new palettes, one permanent (Bad Girl) and one Limited Edition (Good Girl)!

If you want to see swatches of previous Sleek palettes, click here!

I popped down to Superdrug to get these – at £5.99 each they are a good price. I’ve noticed they now tape up Sleek palettes – it’s a good thing because Superdrug customers seem to have busy fingers, but also a bad thing because Sleek palettes are super soft and I’ve taken my fair share home just to find that it’s smashed to pieces.

Don’t think much of the box packaging, it’s a bit corny but I guess that’s not what we’re here for.

Bad girl reminds me immediately of Storm – it has a mixture of white, silvers, grey, purples. It’s a stereotypical bad girl I guess – I think a really bad girl would wear hot red on her eyes.

I can’t fault Sleek in terms of pigmentation and texture – I still think these are soft to the point of crumbling, but for the price, the sheer variety of shades makes it a good purchase….Swatches:

Bad girl is the kind of palette that will appeal to loads of people; I think it’s smoky, sexy, lots of fun to use and yes, recommended. There are a lot more dark colours than light, but I personally prefer this.

Good Girl palette, which is Limited Edition is somewhat disappointing. This is a pink based palette – I totally applaud Sleek for their courage in making a palette dedicated to this hue because god knows most women wouldn’t consider wearing it on their eyes.

I am totally nuts for pink at the moment. But it has to be the right tone. Sheer, pink, pretty or a hot rock chick pink.

I think the shades in the Sleek palette are hard to wear. The pinks are not quite right, there’s no super cool toned hot pink – at least not the one I am looking for, there’s red, there’s orange, there’s coral…screams tired eyes to me.

Also some of the shades are just quite similar when swatched.

On the cheeks – yeah! Totally works as a blusher palette.

Just as well that this is LE otherwise I wouldn’t have a reason to buy it.

Do you have these palettes? If not, would you indulge?

  1. I think it was said that Good Girl is perm.

  2. @Laujoyee Bad Girl is permanent. Probably a good move on Sleek’s part.

    I bought the Bad Girl palette and do really love it. I’d have bought Good Girl as a blush palette but I really don’t need any more blushers! It looks nice and pretty but in reality I’d never use it. I agree. Tired eyes. Tough to make it work well.

    • Hi Chrissy

      I think Good Girl is gorgeous as a blush palette – I think I will use it like that, just have to make sure it’s nicely blended :D

  3. While Good Girl probably is difficult to wear for paler complexions, it should be born in mind that Sleek is a range aimed primarily at women of colour and Good Girl would probably look quite stunning on a much darker skin. Because it’s the palettes rather than the foundations and lipsticks that tend to draw most online attention, I think people sometimes tend to forget that.

    • Hi greatsheelephant

      I agree, those pinks could look quite stunning on dark skins. Having said that I’m not exactly light skinned myself – I just didn’t find these pinks – bar the pale ones – wearable on my eyes. I also think that whilst Sleek began as a brand for ladies of colour, it has expanded into a range that is for all skin tones (ie. their new foundation ranges cater for the lightest of skins to the darkest). So really people of all kinds of skintones will be buying and using these palettes and their other colour products. Definitely a case of an individual deciding what you are happy to wear!

  4. I was looking at these on the Sleek website and I thought that Good Girl looked too much like blush. Not eyeshadow. On a very pale person such as myself…I would look more like I need a lot of sleep or had been smoking Mary Jane a bit too much. Now for the Bad Girl…I’m lovin’ that. :) Go-geous dahlin’…:)

  5. I really like the Bad Girl. The Bad Girl palette reminds me of the limited edition Graphite palette so, I think those that missed out on Graphite could work with one.

  6. I’m gonna have to call my brother and have him go get one for me. I’m in the US so they’re a lot more expensive.
    I already called him 6 months ago to get me Storm and Original. I would pay a lot of money to see my brother look for eye shadow palettes!

  7. hmmm. I bought a backup for Graphite last year since it sold so fast. Bad Girl reminds me an awful lot of it. Pass :)

  8. £5.99 for 12 shadows is great value – Bad girl is on my wish list!

  9. Rebecca Ho says:

    I totally agree with you on the box packaging – i think they could have done it more “sleek”ly and im not totally in love with it
    but i guess its what inside that really counts!

  10. Both palettes are on my wishlist!! :) Thank you for the swatches Rowena! :)
